      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Superbowl Champs

Recommended Posts

The NFL speculators are always making the latest and greatest predictions and barometers based on last years stats, situations, and happenings.

So, if we were to predict the 2008 Vikings off of the 2007 Super Bowl Champs, then we are right on track to be World Champions.

The 2007 Giants started 0-2, finished 10-6, made the playoffs as a wild-card, and won, against all odds, on the road through out the playoffs, and went on to win the Superbowl against the best single season offense to ever play the game.

So, to the optimistic fan, the Vikes shall be 10-6, wild card team, and win the Superbowl.

To the realistic Viking fan, the team finishes 8-8 again, and Chili-Dog w/ Pepper is no longer the head coach.

And to the skeptical fan, the vikes go 5-11, AP gets hurt, and the Vikes play out the end of the season for draft position and take a QB only to spend 3 more seasons trying to see if the kid is an NFL caliber player.

I predict a 10-6 finish, wild card birth, and first round loss, just like the Vikes of the 90's.

With all the money we have spent on players, we have not addressed the Offensive Coordinator position, which in my opinion, is the weaker link then that even of T-Jack.

T-Jack is a rythym QB. If they were aggressive on the first couple series with more passes, I think T-Jack could get the job done. But calling the pass on 3rd and long puts no QB in a comfortable spot, and with the limited experience, he gets tight and his playmanship suffers.

We are predictable, and that has to fall on the coaches.

I think they should coach it both ways. Take a look at yourself, and say "Do I reasonably believe I am tricking the defense into believeing that we are throwing something at them they may not be expecting?"

And then, the only times they do try to pass on first down and then if it is not successful, they panic and go to a run on 2nd down...Then it is 3rd and long.

Furthermore, all the passes that come off of play action are bootlegs to the right side, probably to pull the QB away from the pressure from MCKINNIE being out, and then you limit yourself to the right side of the field with the passes. The probability goes down for converting.

Just let him drop back and read the whole field. Not saying that T-Jack is a great player, but with some creativity from the playcallers and help from the receivers, I think he could be productive.

That is my 2 cents, and I am sticking to it.

here. here! i would have stuck with T-jack. but... oh well. Go vikes!

We need an O-cordinator, who can(is allowed to) think on his own.

I say 9-7(10-6). wild card(maybe). AP-Defense gets us some wins.

HUGE Viking fan!!! I see 6 wins maybe 7 at tops. Childress needs to go. We need to get a QB that can pass///

We could have Jerry Rice, Randy Moss and Issac Bruce all in their prime and it wouldn't make any diff when T jack is about as accurate as a ShAQ free throw. I don't know where the ball is going, and neither does Jackson.

PLease get rid of him ASAP and start somebody other the GUS with some upside soon--- even Booty!!!!!

Carolina 24 Vikes 12--- time to get pink slips in order.

    • This all sounds pretty darn sweet. You may want to start making and selling them.  So, what heats the house at night when the sun goes down?  Or did I miss something? 
    • Imagine just a black box with 2 holes at top and 2 at the bottom with a green house sheeting over the top. All 2x8 cedar and a piece of foam board. 
    • I have a pc type fan in each outlet pulling air through the panel. These are wired to the small solar panels that are behind the plastic sheeting. These are then wired to a snap switch that closes the circuit at 80F and off at 65F. So the fans won't turn on unless they have power supplied by their own solar panels and the temp inside the panel is 80F+. And ya just a pvc trim piece for a cleaner look. We did find that we needed to add just one layer of a ziplock bag to the outlet holes. Just any piece of thin plastic would do. This covered the holes to stop backfeeding at night. And once the fans kick on it's not a problem.  I don't but it hasn't been bad at all. And if you drive north all day it actually works and the house is definitely warmer than the outside once we get there. The whole setup I have maybe $100-$200. The larger solar panel and dual battery system is a whole different deal. 
    • I have given him a bunch of tips if he really took the time to read them before things went south. 1) Add more pictures and some from the sides. Right now all anyone can tell is their buying a hood, windshield and skis! 2) Take the old thin piece of rope off the bumper. 3) Post it on the site that sees a lot more sleds sold. And now. 4) Spend a few minutes and wipe it down clean and Armor-All it and may be spray a little black Rust-Oleum on the skis and other rust colored metal parts.  But that all may be a little more work then he wants to put into getting it out of his garage. Do I have a little experience at buying and selling sleds over many years? Well this one I bought for $2,800. I used it for 3 years and put a few 1000 miles on it and sold it for $2,700 More our less 3 years rent for $100 bucks! Took that money plus $150 more and bought the other one below for $2,850 with only 122 miles on it and it is spotless. So in a few years guess what!  
    • Unfortunately this is probably very true. 
    • Whatever works for ya. To each his own, right? Lot of things on here that aren't my thing, but they keep jabbing right along.
    • I know one you can sing....but it's sad that he has to satirize a song of a musician that just passed away, though. Ah, he doesn't see it from your side Glenn, because it's not his side. If one of us had attempted a rhyme, in reference to him, he'd be all over it.  He needs the site to run according to his views. He's a straight, upstanding fella, ya know. He said so.  Maybe we should sing his song... but he'd go catatonic.  I'm sure you've all heard it in the service. I am surprised it took him this long to jump in. . I will say a certain person(s) did sum it up in that PM, right on the ol' button. *BINGO*!  Carry on! Maybe tomorrow I'll post that song on his thread.....
